Give and Take

Relationships are about give and take. Take comes naturally. Give not quite so much. Giving to others takes effort. It's sacrificing without an expectation for a return. In your relationships, are you in them because it's about you? Or is it about loving others, just as Christ loved you?

And that's all I have... I haven't slept much the past couple of days. Work deadlines..

Destroying Life

Life is beautiful. Abortion, day-after pills, and anything that attempts to destroy a baby are horrid things. I got to spend the day with a bunch of people, and some of those people are little. They are still learning to talk, or how to catch a ball, or maybe even learning how to read. Each of these little souls are a beautiful thing and we need to see them this way. I'm sick and tired of people who spend all their time pursuing money, cars, guns, and in general material objects. These people may get married, but it's so they can lower their taxes, sleep together, and in general serve themselves like fat kings and queens on high altars.

Life is about others.

Life is not about you.

Christ called you to serve. If serving involves taking care of widows and orphans in Uganda, great! If it involves writing books to encourage others, great! If it involves raising children and discipling them, great! If it involves you getting home from a looonnngggg 8 hour workday and then proceeding to complain about your job, opening a beer, and lounging on the couch while drooling on yourself while watching the four episodes of the Bachelorette that you missed because you were gossiping with your friends, then that is terrible.

Take some time and evaluate. What is your life about? Is it about serving yourself, or serving others? Are you willing to destroy another human's life, so you can watch your tv show in peace? Whether that human life is twenty-five years old, or in the womb for twenty-five days?

I'm going to eat ice cream and consider this question now.. XP

Life is Too Short

To be about yourself. If someone hurts you, ow. I'm sorry. But we can't sit around feeling sorry for ourselves. There are millions of babies that are being killed right now. There are others who need a hug and some prayer. There is a friend who needs to have coffee with you. There are about 7 billion people out there and more and more of them are becoming lost in this ever more and more lonely and hateful world. Use the gifts that God has given you to minister to others. Get them some coffee and then sit down and talk about the freedom Christ has given you in Him.

"He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much." ~ Luke 16:10

May we be faithful. Not unjust.

We're all weak. We all could easily die in a car accident, or a disease could destroy our bodies, or maybe we develop a blood clot. The thing is, mortality is something that people either ignore or fear if they don't have faith in God. It's either drowning oneself in media, alcohol, women, or power or it's living every day in a fear that may bring one to worship death, which may be expressed in demon worship, forms of tattoos, etc.

As a Christian, you have no reason to fear your mortality. You don't need to drown your thoughts out at the local bar. Mortality only gives way to immortality. Time may end for us in this life, but it goes on with great joy after we pass over the river. In this mortal life, we can rejoice in the troubles and trials because we know that we serve a good God who has promised much better things than even the good gifts he gives us on this earth.

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. ~ Matthew 10:28

Life is a Bowl of

Strawberries. :-D

It seems that life is always handing you strawberries. They could be mushy. They could be sweet. They could be sour. They might be perfect. They may have mold on them. They may be tiny. They may be large.

But, they're all strawberries. ^_^ And that's pretty neat.
